200+ activities to develop the body, voice, mind, and heart

This resource has over 200 dramatic activities for parents, child care providers, and pre-K educators wanting to incorporate drama into curriculum, or do theater with young children. No prior theater experience necessary just a desire to nurture self-expression, empathy, social-emotional, and physical development of young children.

When young children engage in dramatic play in centers, the children must work together to decide roles, find props, and create the setting and story for the drama together. Drama play, in large or small groups, can also be an opportunity for children to reflect on the world around them and draw from their own experiences and observations.

A Little Drama includes:

  • activities using music, movement, imaginative play, visual art and literature
  • an introduction to why drama is so important in early childhood
  • strategies on how to incorporate drama in the classroom
  • tools to get everyone centered and on track
  • sample lesson plans

Review by: Alexander Santiago-Jirau - March 22, 2018
A substantial and comprehensive addition to the field of theatre pedagogy in the early childhood classroom. Easy-to-use and full of multidisciplinary activities, A Little Drama serves as a valuable reminder that young children learn in different ways, and that play and drama can help to diversify teaching and to meet students’ varied learning needs.
Review by: James Miles - March 22, 2018
A Little Drama is the most comprehensive and thorough book on how to use dramatic activities with young children, that I have ever come across. It is a must have tool for educators, administrators, parents, or anyone that works with the very young.
Review by: Jeanne Klein - March 22, 2018
Lavinia Roberts provides a wealth of well-organized drama activities, especially for busy educators who have not facilitated drama with young children.  Teachers may easily choose and integrate any number of brief exercises, including simple yoga poses, that inspire child-centered learning and promote social, emotional, physical, and metacognitive development in their daily plans.
